My greatest achievement so far in this journey, is seeing young talented artistes Recognized, Known and Heard Globally.
*From 2013 to 2014 we saw a great development, does that mean we should be expecting a bomb in Gom award 2015?
Gosh! I will always appreciate God for the success of Gom Awards 2013 and 2014. And those who supported us, in any way. Gom Awards 2015 promises to be different from the previous event. We are growing and advancing everyday.
“Na so oooo”, Gom Awards is confronted with many challenges. Till date, we are yet to have a Sponsor/Partner to finance the project. It’s being financed by individuals (Family, Fans and Friends).
* We have seen you promoting a lot of gospel artist in the past years, are you working on any gospel artist?
Hahahahahahahahhaha! I’m passionate about ADVANCEMENT. So, just be expectant.
*Sir, how often do artists get in contact with you for promotions, and in what way do you help them?
Artistes contact me on a daily bases for possible promotion. I always thank God for making me Relevant. I assist artistes in many ways. Sometimes I offer FREE consultancy services, network, connect artistes with Marketers, Media Personalities (Radio/TV/Bloggers) and Events/Show organizers.
*Based on your field sir, what makes and qualify an artist to become a nominee and winner in his category at the Gom award?
Winning GomAwards entails many stages. First, Artistes/Labels will indicate interest, by submitting their Works. Secondly, our reputable JUDGES, will VET their works (Creativity, Originality, Lyrical prowess, Production etc), which successful artistes will be among our NOMINEES LIST. Finally, the Nominees will seek for VOTEs from public (Fans). So, it’s all about releasing standard/quality songs. GomAwards is meant to instill hard-work and to reduce mediocrity in Gospel artistes.
* Where do you see Gom award in the next 5years?
I see Gom Awards becoming a Global BRAND in the next 5 years.
*We want to know sir, will Gom award open a record lebel someday?
No plans to open a record label for now. Though, Tok86 Entertainment will just be an Artiste Management company for now.
*Do you in any way think another firm will raise like gom award i.e in promoting artist in kaduna?
Oh YES!!! Monopoly is bad. I will be glad to see another Gospel Awards Organisation in Kaduna. It will make my dream of making Kaduna a music friendly and attractive centre come true.
